is a legend, and after 24 years in the cia clandestine services, he became a little more public by helping then-secretary of state copped condoleezza rice coordinate the counterterrorism efforts around the world. he went even more public this past year with a book, a very well-received and well-reviewed book on "the art of intelligence." and behind those emerging from the world of shadows was a driving desire and ambition to educate american policymakers and especially the american public about the needs and uses of intelligence in our hyperconnected world of asymmetrical threats. but before that he created his signal legend in afghanistan where he took roughly 110cia officers and 400-plus special operations forces to overthrow the taliban. mission accomplished, really, in a few very long weeks. so we'd like to start there, mr. ambassador, and say how did you get that mission, and how did you come up with that plan? >> shelby, thanks for the opportunity to be here. it was an intelligence mission, first and foremost, if we rook at afghanistan, and -- if we look at afghanistan, and we deploy

met with the acting director of the cia and ambassador rice because his certainly clear from the beginning that we knew those with ties to al qaeda were involved in the attack on the embassy and clear the impression given in information given to the american people was wrong. in fact, ambassador rice said today absolutely was wrong. i don't understand the cia said clearly that that information was wrong and they knew by the 22nd that it was wrong, yet they have not cleared that up with the american people. the president of the united states also talked about the reaction to the video of the attacks of benghazi. what troubles me also is obviously the changes made for the unclassified talking points were misleading, but just to be clear when you have a position where you're ambassador to the united nations, you go well beyond unclassified talking point in your daily preparation for that job and that's struggling for me as well why she wouldn't have asked and the person who doesn't know if you thought the senate on every single show. in addition, the fact that it's not just talk

to personality strikes against named terrorists, the c.i.a. and the military have carried out signature strikes against groups of suspected un unnonmilitants. in the beginning this started by targeting certain people without knowing exactly who they were, but we thought that is a signature of a known al-qaeda leader. then it morphed into unknown people and unknown possible militants there are guns down there. that's why we so often hit weddings because people in afghanistan and yemen bring guns to weddings and shoot them in celebration. then they say there is militant activity there they hit the wedding and many die. that is thoughtful, immoral and ridiculous. i'm not against all drone strikes. drone strikes can prevent full war instead. i'm not against that. but i'm against dumb, immoral counterproductive and lawless drone strikes. do you know not only do we do these signature strikes but we have executed u.s. citizens abroad with no trial whatsoever. that's not what this country is supposed to stand for. i'm not saying end the drone program. i'm saying at least at the very least put very stri

will be with the acting cia director michael morrell, they're going to be answering questions, at least it's expected, answering questions about why she said what she said when she did. in other words, when she went on those sunday talk shows, how much did she know? what were the talking points? did she really know more than the talking points? did she just stick to the talking points? was there more that she could have looked into? and this, again, i think reflects some of the confusion. don't forget, you know, there are three investigations. congressional, fbi, and state. and until those are completed. >> thank you so much, jill. >> a lot of people here in the northeast looking towards the sky this morning. winter storm we hear headed our way. let's get a quick check on the weather with alexandra steele. >> good morning to you guys. quick hitter. rain and snow. we're seeing it move in this morning and will exit this afternoon. and into the early evening. you can see, of course, the white delineating where the snow is predominantly kind of the axis of this main snow is here in southeastern pennsylva
